Your Weekly Horoscope by Element

For the week of May 11, 2008

by Elizabeth Joyce

Week of May 11th through May 18th

Air, Fire, Water and Earth

Right at the beginning of May and continuing on through the month, we can see the last gasp of the Saturn-Pluto trine, as it finally begins to separate for the last time. However it is still close enough that every aspect a planet makes to Pluto will quickly be followed by another aspect to Saturn. The effect of these two planets is not to be ignored.

In some combinations this can bring quite a bit of strife weather wise, work wise, financially, religiously and personally. However, with this particular aspect the large corporations are involved, (Virgo, Capricorn). It signals the rise of new contenders on the World Scene (mainly China) and the diminishing of the old (mainly the U.S.) due to economic shifts.

Quite possibly, events this month, especially in the last two weeks, could play a major role in the upcoming U.S. presidential election. It may become clear that despite its many strengths, the U.S. is more and more becoming first among equals, rather than the most singularly top world power. More than that, the sense that the US is slowly slipping from this top spot could be growing at this time, as well as the sense that something must be done to reverse this landslide. Any candidate not in tune with this approaching danger will have a tough time of it.

We now have Venus in Taurus, Saturn in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn, or what is known as a Grand Trine. This is rare and can only occur once every 38 years. It is associated with someone “stepping down,” abdicating the throne, assassinations or resignations. A plan put together on May 2nd could be executed around May 26th when Mercury and Neptune retrograde on the same day!

The obvious thing to think is that this will effect the Fall elections, but that may not be the case. The scene of resignations and opting out could be elsewhere in the government, including George Bush handing the reigns to Cheney for health reasons, or Cheney himself in the hospital because of a health concern. Someone could step out of the Democratic Presidential race, or an attempt could be made on a candidate’s life.

Whatever this event is, it will be done with grace and an inspiring look forward. No – not everything will be blooming flowers, sunlight and roses during the beautiful month of May, but there will be a lot to be thankful for, hopeful for as well as enough to make us optimistic about the months that lie ahead for us.

The Air Signs

Gemini - Libra – Aquarius

Being flexible this week is a must for you Air Signs. Mars is currently moving through Leo where it is helping you to clear the air and say it like it is. Ego issues may make it difficult to create a truce or to agree on anything. You will need to let go of any sense of pride, try not to be so stubborn, and adopt a more flexible approach. Then it will be easier to find a solution. If you can do this, you will feel that the problems tend to melt away like morning mist. New relationships seem to take off as a result of conversations that create a meeting of minds and hearts. You have plenty to look forward to in this area. Your home zone is emphasized in a rather wonderful way, which is perfect for entertaining and for working on a few home improvements, or even looking for a new home. This is also a good week for getting some time to yourself and reflecting on your priorities and on how your life is going overall. A mini-retreat will help you get back in touch with your essential self and will increase your energy levels as you let go of unwanted emotions. You will find yourself even more empowered afterwards.

The Fire Signs

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Tap into your Blessed Higher Self and intuitive knowledge Fire Signs. This week seems to be a very positive and upbeat time, in which you get to make great progress, especially at work. The Sun and Venus are highlighting you and helping you clarify your objectives. Monday is an exciting time, when you will be inspired to make changes in your routines that will help you more easily fulfill your goals and dreams. A kind of innate knowledge that has been in your family for generations may make itself felt, perhaps when you are trying to resolve a problem that is rather testing. As well as sorting out an ongoing issue, you may also find that it sparks a few ideas that could be integrated into your daily schedule. This is the week when you may decide to ask your boss for a raise. Monday is a great day to say your piece, and if you both happen to be working on Sunday, this would be a good day to broach the subject as well. Travel of one kind or another looks very likely. You want more from life than the humdrum activities that may have filled your days of late. You are ready to take the world by storm.

The Water Signs

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Expect some competition and stand up to it, Water Signs. Help and support for your plans will come from a variety of people this week. The minute you realize that you need to get something done, the right people will show up. You seem to get a lot of help by just asking and by being willing to reach out and talk to anyone and everyone about your current needs. You will also serve as a source of inspiration for others, who come to you for a fresh perspective on their issues. If you work in the media, write, or teach for a living, you will have a good week with plenty of progress. Getting an advertising campaign off the ground will also work wonders, as you should get a good response. Mars has just moved into Leo and is encouraging you to be more competitive on all fronts. If your health schedule has fallen by the wayside, this is a great opportunity to get it back on track. Your enthusiasm will enable you to make a new start. At work, you are keen to get things moving and may act as the catalyst that spurs other co-workers into action. Your love life is quiet, but your social life will brighten up the week.

The Earth Signs

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

You Earth Signs are just Loving It All! Your life will take a much more positive turn this week, and one that will enable you to get ahead. For some time, you may have felt that everything was an uphill struggle; now you will begin to see how success comes to you more easily. There is less resistance from you, too, which always helps. Monday brings a chance to explore new options and new areas of growth. Your partner, work colleagues, or perhaps someone you have never met before will bring a host of exciting ideas your way that may help you to think outside the box and come up with some wonderful plans. Relationships, whether business or romantic, seem to kick-start your creativity and to encourage you to be more confident and productive. This is especially so over the weekend, when Venus sextiles Uranus and trines Jupiter. Someone to whom you can relate to very well will help you to come up with a brilliant plan that could be the start of something big. Mars has just moved into Leo, which will stir up the contents of your psyche and perhaps bring some powerful dreams your way. Be sure to make a note of them as they may contain powerful new ideas for success.
